The Age of Consequences sparks policy makers to act on national security threat of climate change
The Age of Consequences – an investigation of climate change and US national security – played theatrically in the US & Canada, garnered critical acclaim at festivals worldwide (HotDocs, Sheffield, DOC NYC), charted in the top 5 on iTunes, and has global distribution with PBS. A US premium cable network (yet to announce) will launch their new documentary strand with the film’s release in September.
In wake of the US TV/Streaming premiere, we will use the film as a tool to garner support for H.Res 195 “Expressing the commitment of the House of Representatives to conservative environmental stewardship.” There is language in it specifically about climate change being a “national security threat”. More details coming soon.
Spearheaded by outreach director Sophie Robinson – and impact producers Tatiana McPartland & Mia Bruno – the film has to date enjoyed a robust outreach campaign, playing at over 100 universities including MIT, Harvard, & Yale, mainstaying environmental group events, and screening with policy makers on Capitol Hill, the UN, NATO, European Union, UK Parliament, Australian Defense Force, and NASA.
